Los Angeles via Denmark artist Majken has been keeping busy ahead of her record release. With two EPs under her belt and four video teasers that highlight a talent from a bottomless well, she’s ready and streaming twelve tracks baked in the California sun.
Opening with “Dreaming of Franco”, Majken builds a foundation of classic indie, with playful strums and a charming, monotone recitation of the pitfalls of a relationship. As she channels beachy styles well known in these parts, she rewrites the narrative to fit her own vision.
As a writer, she flows with a stream of consciousness uncharacteristic of the standard pop styles. It’s the story of a traveling musician who wants to live in the moment while establishing artistic roots in the ever changing soil beneath her feet. As a musician, she takes a deceptively minimalist approach. While no single instrument leads any charges, each are layered and balanced with a healthy dose of fuzz.
